Idea networking is a crucial element of social innovation often overshadowed by resource networking. That’s why we created Inno Soko to create a safe space for innovators to practice, play with and connect over ideas.
The event will be on Wednesday, 15th of November at The Kijiji, Daykio Plaza, Ngong Lane from 6PM – 8:30PM.
During the evening, 10 ideas will be presented and perfected through feedback – hence a market for socially innovative ideas. We are looking for people to share their ideas – are you one of them? please contact us!
If you are someone who is interested in changing the way we create change, would like to meet other players in the innovation sector and potentially collaborate with them, this event is for you.
